Lean into your strengths and be the change you — and employees — want to see in the workplace
“I’ve had a few companies bring me in for leadership development with some of their employees. And I’m honest with them, that this is going to awaken this person.
“They’re going to understand who they are and their true value, and what they really want from their career and their life. And they may start to question, is this the right place for me?”
As a leadership coach and career advisor, Larry Cornett, Ph.D. helps individuals level-up by understanding, embracing, and investing in themselves.
But for years, Larry felt out of place in his own career. Working with companies like IBM, Apple, eBay, and Yahoo, he believed his introversion was a disadvantage he had to overcome. So in order to achieve his dreams, he settled for feeling uncomfortable in his own skin.
In this episode, host Matt East and Larry dig into his article “How To Leverage Introversion as a Career Strength,” chat about his own journey, and explore the changing dynamics of leadership and why introverts are well-equipped for the future.
